July was a very special month for me. First off I GOT MARRIED!!!! On July 11th I got to marry the man of my dreams...what made it really special is July 11th 2015 was our 10 year anniversary. I'm doing a whole life update blog post about this past month and our wedding.....keep your eyes open for that post, it should be up next week.
So my first July favorite is my wedding dress & bouquet. I LOVED my wedding dress, I haven't decided what I'm going to do with it just yet. Also my bouquet is another favorite, it was layers and layers of feathers, crystals, sparkle....I even think there was a brooch in there. I'm not a big flower person so my mom ended up making me my bouquet based off of a picture I found online. We decided to skip the bouquet & garter toss at my wedding (my garter has been in the family for 60 years and I was the first of my generation to wear it on my wedding day). I'm planning on framing my bouquet in a shadow box and hanging it in our new house when we move in.
Because July was my wedding month most of these favorites have to do with my wedding.
First off 5 days before my wedding my makeup mirror BROKE!!! I was so upset, I did my own makeup on my wedding day and I needed a makeup mirror. Luckily I had a 20% off coupon for Bed Bath & Beyond so I ran out there and picked up the Zadro Dimmable Florescent Dual-Sided Mirror. I got this one because I remembered MakeupbytiffanyD talking about this mirror. I would never think to get a florescent mirror but it is amazing! I truly think my makeup application looks better because I can see more clearly what I'm doing. This mirror is supposed to imitate natural sunlight which I defiantly think it does. I also really like how you can control them dim. My last make mirror was on/off, there was no option to dim the light. If you are looking for a new mirror I highly recommend this one and make sure to use your 20% coupon as it was a little pricey.
The lashes I wore on my wedding day were the Ardell Accent 301. I've been experimenting for the past few months with lashes. I knew I wanted something for my wedding pictures as my lashes are long but not very full. I loved these lashes because they are pretty natural but they still show up in photos. Actually I get a lot of complements from friends and when I tell them they are fake people were SHOCKED! I did a trial in my engagement photos and they came back looking amazing so I used them for my wedding as well.
Waterproof mascara is a MUST on your wedding day. Normally I don't wear mascara with false lashes but I made an exception for my wedding day. I used the Chanel Volume de Chanel Waterproof mascara with my false lashes. I did have some waterworks on my wedding day and everything stayed put!
Last favorite is the Kat Von D Shade & Light pallete. This pallete is great for highlight and contour! I only use 4 of the 6 colors so I've depotted those 4 colors and put them into zpalletes so it doesn't take up so much room on my vanity. The colors are amazing and blend really well. I'm really pale so finding highlights that show up and contours that aren't too dark is very hard to do. I think this pallete is very diverse which I love!
That's it for this month. Thank you so much for stopping by and supporting my blog.
